Master of Business Administration (Executive)

Australian Catholic University (ACU)

The corporate landscape is shifting; companies focused exclusively on maximising shareholder wealth are being challenged to consider their broader social and community obligations and how they are contributing to the common good. To what extent should corporations be ethically or values-driven rather than shareholder focused? At ACU we believe this is a false dichotomy - and an illusory trade-off. Emerging evidence suggests that serving the social good is a winning model for driving sustainable long-term profit growth and value creation. Our Executive Master of Business Admiration (MBAE) challenges participants to consider how contemporary business models can embrace ethical values and sustainable profit growth, and how these two apparently competing ambitions are, in fact, intertwined and interdependent. The MBAE is robust by design. We aim to challenge you, to engage you in lively debate, to give you skills that enable you to think critically, differently and outside of the standard, to tackle the big questions, and create bigger results with true mutual value and benefit. It is a refreshing interdisciplinary learning journey, drawing from the fields of psychology, sociology, humanities, business, economics, accounting, finance, education, and philosophy, and focusing on the core elements of business.
